What is a reference?
It is a tissue (= media) or an assembly of several tissues (= mask). Each fabric or assembly must be identified by a name or number (= reference) which must be documented in the purchasing process. This reference is essential because it is used to establish the traceability of your sample.
What is a sample?
A sample is a reference piece.
In the case of a fabric, please provide a sample of 15cmx 15cm.
In the case of an assembly (mask), please provide your assembled product.
4 samples are needed per reference and per test ordered
I want to get a "Guaranteed Filtration - 30 washes" label but I am not sure of the test results. How to perform tests after 10 and 20 washes for the same reference?
If you are not sure of the performance of your reference, you have the possibility for each type of label considered to order intermediate samples during the washing cycles to carry out filtration / breathability tests. In this example, order the product “Filtration guaranteed – 30 washes” and optionally indicate 2 intermediate tests to be carried out after 10 and 20 washes. Plan to provide 4 additional samples of your reference per intermediate test ordered.
I have my test results, what next?
